my ‘long’ weekendPosted: July 3, 2011
The weekend has felt kind of long to me since my hubby has had to work the whole thing! Hopefully by next summer we’ll get to enjoy the benefits of summer together. But for now, he works his bum off and I’m so proud of him!
Between me working and him working it’s a shock that we actually see each other, but we did – on Friday night, at least!
They just put on a new deck addition on, so you know where we were sitting. There was live entertainment; a lady performing on the guitar. Now, I’m not sure who brings a bird to a pub, but one man did, and placed it on the singer at one point.
It was actually pretty funny, because the bird would slide down the strap and stare at her, like above. I admit, I would be a little freaked out if I was trying to perform and someone put a bird on my shoulder…you never know what could happen!
On to dinner…it was awesome! We both had the special’s that night; I had the ‘catch of the day’ and Tyler had the ‘surf and turf.’
I forgot what fish it was (d’oh!), but it was SO tender and delicious. It was topped off with a mango sauce, side veggies and hard wheatberry salad.
Tyler’s was a pasta dish with beef tenderloin, shrimp and scallops in a cream sauce. I only had a small bite of a scallop and it was good!
Saturday was chill central…maybe a little too chill. Since Tyler was at work, again, I didn’t have a lot of motivation to do much of anything. I did make it to some grocery stores, but other than that, I was a lost cause!
While I was waiting for Tyler to drive home from work last night, I happened to notice this sweet storm a brewin’.
What caught my attention, was this sky:
Aren’t the lingering clouds crazy?!
The sky continued to get crazier. While raining, this is what I saw!
Possible UFO sighting? haha
Only a few more crazy sky pics! So bright in one spot and dark in another…
The sky went pinkish/purple when lightening struck.
Can you even tell that’s it lightening or raining for that matter when the sky looks so neat?!
Husband’s working ALL day today, so I went for a run today (ran 5.92 miles – wish I woulda made it to 6!) despite the hot, hot weather. There was a bit of wind for the first part of my run, but then it went away…turning me into a tomato!
Before I took my red-self home, I made a quick stop at the health food store, and I’m so glad I did. Picked up some local organic strawberries for only $1.50. Total steal!
Once I was home, I made an acai and mixed berry smoothie.
Showering should have taken priority, but smoothies clearly come first!
And that’s my ‘long’ weekend in a nutshell.
How did you spend your Canada Day or Fourth of July weekend?
